The House of Representatives has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to transmit the Tripartite Agreement on National Minimum Wage to the National Assembly for legislation, to avert the looming industrial action
threatened by organized labour, with the potential of paralyzing the nation’s socio-economic and political activities- and its attendant costs.

The green chamber also advised the Federal Government to henceforth display good faith in implementing
the age-old agreement mutually reached between it and Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) so as to check the union’s incessant strikes as it’s only weapon of compelling governnent to the negotiating, table all of the time.
The resolution emanated from a motion raised under matters of urgent national importance of Wednesday’s plenary by Mr. Mohammed Zorro (APC, Jigawa).
Speaking to members on the floor, Mr. Zorro who says he is alarmed by threats of industrial action by organized labour in the face of the stalemate caused
by the failure to facilitate the due process, called for appropriate resolution of the dispute.

Meanwhile, the House further resolved to constitute an ad-hoc committee with the Senate to investigate the remote and immediate causes of the industrial action threat by the Parliamentary Staff Association of the National Assembly that distrupted legislative activities on Tuesday.
The ad-hoc committee is expected to make appropriate recommendations to both chambers to proffer permanent solutions to the industrial action.
